Episode Description

Football is back! The NFL season officially kicked off in Denver Thursday night and the Philly Sports Jabronis couldn’t be any more turned up. How the hell did we make it through the past eight months without the NFL? Anyway, the long wait is over and we’re here to break down the entire Eagles schedule from Week 1 (looking like it might be a blowout in D.C.) all the way down to the finale in Big D. We’ll cap wins and losses, predict breakout stars and busts, and maybe even dust off the pom-poms and do some cheers … wait, what!? Disregard that last part unless you are a hot college student looking for an internship. All this discussion and more with the Philly Sports Jabronis, recently nominated for the PHL 17 Philly Hot List — voting ends Sept. 6.

The Philly Sports Jabronis provide Philly sports fans with what they can’t live without: Lively conversation and attitude-filled debate. We’re just like any Philly fan. We’re opinionated, we’re unapologetic and we like to think we’re intelligent enough to know what we’re talking about. As longtime reporters and journalists, we have inside access to all Philly’s teams. Heck, we’ve even tried out for some of them. Our hearts beat with the passionate pulse of the Philadelphia sports fan, because that’s who we are. We’ve lived Philly sports every day since God graced the green earth with our presence. We are Philly sports, and you will be too.

Joe Darrah and Mike Greger

Joe Darrah and Mike Greger

Joe Darrah was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia. He learned his first lesson of Philadelphia sports fandom in the late 80s as he proudly paraded around his parents’ living room in Wissinoming Park, clad in his Chicago Bears Walter Payton jersey. Under the icy stare of his grandfather, Joe had suddenly become the enemy. He quickly learned that it’s not the wisest of choices to wear anything other than eagles green on a football Sunday.

Today, Joe still greatly admires Payton, but also admires the city he grew up in and the passion its fans have for its sports teams. We claim a personal stake with each win and loss. We follow our teams and demand that they understand our expectations. And we express our emotions feverishly on sports-talk radio.

Joe has brought the same intensity he’s lived with as a fan to his professional career as a sportswriter. He’s covered the sports scene through the high school, college and professional ranks, and has committed himself to maintaining the pride of being a Philadelphian who’s never afraid to express his opinions—and, yes, he’s got lots of them.

Mike Greger grew up in the Philadelphia area bleeding Eagles green, watching Randall Cunningham break his opponent's ankles and praying for a Super Bowl. When that didn't happen, he ditched his rally towel, because there's no cheering in the press box, and embarked on a career in sports journalism and started covering the Eagles and Phillies for Metro Philadelphia, as well as serving as NFC West Editor for Football.com. Mike also contributes as an active member to the Pen and Pencil Club and Philadelphia Sports Writers Association.

Mike is a hybrid, a sports junkie at the core, with an insane addiction to pop culture and the hip hop music scene, majoring in poetic justice. Basically, he sees himself as the living, breathing version of Roc Nation Sports.

Mike is a little bit Chad Johnson, mixed with Tupac Shakur and blended over rocks with Larry Bird. He never takes himself too seriously, but when he’s trying to prove his point, he brings serious heat. He never antagonizes, but don’t antagonize him! There are important points and opinions he wants to get out, and WILL get out, but he never forgets that sports is a beautiful distraction for people.
